State Of The ARC #22

I finished November with 13 ARCs left to be read.  Is it just me, or does it feel like December lasted a really long time? Thanksgiving feels like forever ago, and while our Chanukah family party was only two weeks ago, it also seems like it was a […]

State Of The ARC #20

I finished September with 14 ARCs left to be read.  October, or ARCtober, as I like to think of it, was a smashing success. I’ve continued to reduce how many books I’ve requested, while reading as many ARCs as I could. In fact, I managed to halve my […]

State Of The ARC #14
